In memory of Dad, I did what I hardly ever do – some gardening. Having purchased a quince sapling the other day, to-day I planted it: Cydonia oblonga, var. Smyrna. A quince, of course, is called in Latin "Cydonian apple". Quinces are a favourite fruit of mine, for their aroma and taste... and Dad did love gardening.
